Drive in - Park The Car - Open the front door and you are home !
We were met By Amanda and shown around, the place was immaculate and spacious. A new table and chairs in the garden area were the first to be used with a bottle of Red and snacks. Then our whole week was centred around the cottage.
The whole place looked like it had just been renovated and was in A1 Condition with lovely leather 2 seaters around the big telly. The kitchen was well equipped and certainly big enough to cook in and well designed.
The bedrooms were spacious and plenty of storage. The beds were ok but when you are used to memory foam topped beds the spring type mattress were a little hard but that is certainly a matter of personal opinion.
If we had to wish for something extra then it would be a wireless connection as in this day and age wireless is a must.
I was the only person with 3g connection (On EE) Three had no signal at all. (Certainly not the owners fault)
all in all a very nice place to centre your holiday around would certainly recommend it. Thank you John & Amanda.
Langton's View is a lovely cottage in the village of Horning. A lovely warm welcome from Amanda on arrival and a bottle of bubbly which was a nice surprise. The cottage was immaculately clean. We are a family of four with two teenage boys (one of which is over 6ft tall!) and the cottage was more than adequate in size for us all. The cottage is well equipped with a huge tv with DVD player in the living room which was perfect for the one day of rain that we had. Also there are tv's in the bedrooms which was a nice addition. The bedrooms are a good size with plenty of storage . The kitchen also well equipped. Also parking literally outside the front door which was ideal. The view down to the river Bure is stunning and it was really easy to hire a boat from their boat yard next door and go and explore the broads. It was also nice to be able to sit in the patio area in the evening sun and relax. The peace and quiet was lovely! There is also a pontoon belonging to the cottage that is perfect for fishing. Horning itself has lots of places to eat, The Ferry does excellent food and has Wi-Fi with a nice view over the river, there are also 2 other pubs. Also a few little cafes . We visited a cafe called County Treats which was friendly, not over priced and really good food. We can recommend the cooked breakfast there! There's also a post office and off licence and Chinese takeaway. Horning itself is very central for getting around with Wroxham just four miles away with lots of restaurants and takeaways. The Golden fish Chinese does really good food. Also Roys of Wroxham department store and supermarket does pretty much everything you need and is reasonably priced or alternatively there is a Tescos about 20 drive away from Horning. Wroxham Barns is about 10 minutes drive away from the cottage, Bewilderwood about 5 minutes away, Great Yarmouth about half an hours drive. There is definitely plenty to do in the area including some nice walks. We had a lovely week, helped of course by the good weather but Langtons View is the perfect base to explore the broads as it is comfortable, homely and a place we looked forward returning to to relax in at the end of a busy day. Thank you Amanda and John for your hospitality and hopefully we will get an opportunity to come back and stay in the cottage again in the future.
I went here with my parents and joined them for their holiday. The place itself was on the small side, the room with the twin beds was on a slant so the floor wasn't straight. The furniture was uncomfortable, the dining chairs sank in and the twin beds were exceptionally hard. Additionally, the place does not provide towels.
The pontoon at the back of the property was relaxing and nice to sit out on and the location is only a few minutes walk away from Horning.
I feel in comparison for the price there are better places with better amenities that you can get for a holiday for a cheaper price than my family paid and with more comfortable surroundings and furniture. Therefore, I would say the cottage was ok but the main selling feature is the pontoon.
The rear of the hutted accommodation is nicely situated overlooking a side shoot of the river Bure. The accommodation is OK but a tad expensive (the immediate rear river view probably accounts for that). The price did not include electricity and towels not provided. The town of Horning is nearby and this is a good location in relation to travel around the Norfolk Broads. We rented a day boat from the owner which was useful in exploring the river Ant. We also went on the Bure Valley railway from Wroxham which was novel but views from the train restricted by the banks either side of a lot of the track. The fishing from the property was disappointing because of the shallow water having a lot of water weeds. Weather was good - an enjoyable week.
What a lovely little place to stay. Handily located for the various pubs and cafes in the pretty village of Horning, and situated right on the river Bure, it was the perfect escape for our family.
The hosts couldn't have been more welcoming, and the place was very clean and tidy and well equipped. And there's car parking right next to the house.
Plus it was excellent value for a week's stay right in the middle of the Norfolk broads in the school holidays.
I'm not sure we could have asked for anything more!
